votes to win the presidency and our cbs news election team estimates that 255 are solidly in the obama camp or leaning toward him. for mr. romney it's 206. so the election will come down to the nine swing states that could go either way. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, bob, what do you make of how close it is in the swing states? >> well, it started out close and it is even closer now. scott, i kind of took a survey of our pollsters. they can not recall a time when these battleground states are closer than they are right now with the possible exception of ohio where the president has a teeny lead. all of these states are in the margin of error. what that means is there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it's just going to come down to who gets their voters to the polls. it's going to be all about turnout. this race is an absolute dead heat from everything that we have that we can measure it by. >> pelley: bob, thanks very much. bob will have the latest on the campaign and the afterm

in florida or virginia at this point. he could be focusing more on ohio and the pickup states. president obama, that map is a little bit misleading. where he's really spending all of his time in the last three days is in wisconsin, in iowa, and in ohio. >> can he win with wisconsin, iowa, virginia, and florida? >> clearly, he will win with all those. he could win without some of those things as long as he holds onto wisconsin and iowa he could lose a bunch of other states. that's his firewall. he's spending a bunch of time in the firewall states like nevada and wisconsin and iowa. that's the way that he holds on even if romney somehow runs the table in florida, virginia, and ohio. if he can hold those other states, he can still win. >> chuck, you go along with that? >> i do. >> we need virginia and florida? >> i have been trying -- the sunday romney schedule had been in the dark. they had set it up. here is the sunday schedule. we just got it. iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia. now -- >> pennsylvania, they got a chance there? yes. is it likely? >> feels like they're looki
